A Conceptual Model for Building Breast Cancer E-Portals with Arabic Content

Mohammed M I Awad


Abstract—this paper presents a new conceptual model for building e-portals with Arabic content; as a solution for the resulting problems due to the shortage in Arabic e-content and e-portals about breast cancer. This shortage has led to lack of breast-cancer awareness, prevention, early detection, and treatment. Furthermore, the research has been built on solid review and conclusion to the literature about breast cancer. Therefore, the paper explored breast cancer status in the Arab countries, in addition to highlighting statistics regarding the existence percentage of breast cancer among Arab women; distributed over age, country, and cancer type.
